york university. today's "wall street journal" questions the big bonus citi paid lew. sounds a lot like revolving door crony capitalism. that's right. back with us now is mike ozanian, steve mcmahon, and kay bailey hutchison. mike, i don't know this guy. i don't know. i don't know why nyu had to give him a special severance payment. he left voluntarily. i don't know why citigroup had to give him a bonus. he went to the federal government. the stipulation was if you go work for the federal government, we will guarantee you a bonus. not if you go work for the red cross or a non-profit. this sounds to me like crony capitalism revolving door. >> you know what? i have so much respect for tim geithner, that to me this seems like such a downgrade. it's very disturbing to me. it bothers me even more than the nomination of chuck hagel. it just seems like the president is totally disengaged. no one vetted this guy. it's just crony capitalism, as you said. and the president spoke so vehemently for so long that this was something he was going to put a stop to. >> that's a key point. he talked about
